Through this course, we aim to create a safe space and community where students can learn about empathy, connect with others, and practice self-care. Class time will focus on discussion and activities, and homework will be multidisciplinary and alternative. Students will be asked to keep a journal for the class throughout the semester, and weekly dyads (one-on-one meet-ups between students in a safe and comfortable way) will be required. Classes will focus on topics such as the basics of empathy, empathy and art, empathy and the environment, empathy and movement, and empathy and poetry, plus active listening, self-compassion, love languages and more!
This class is heavily focused on the individual. Attendance is mandatory, and class will be synchronous. You can choose to take 1 or 2 units. This class is for everyone—whether you already feel comfortable with empathy and want to learn more, or have never explicitly thought about it.
No day(s) left until application deadline!
